Video Transcript for Optronics Amber RV Porch Utility Light with Switch Review and Installation

Hey everybody, it's Zach here at Today we're going to take a look at a RV utility porch light. This is going to work out great for RVs and campers like we have here today, but it's also going to work out great for utility trailers. So, it has a built-in switch on it. So, you don't necessarily have to have a switch on the inside of your camper or trailer. So, I think it works out well for those areas around basement doors or in those little compartment areas on your camper, or especially on your utility trailers, like an enclosed trailer.

If you don't have a light switch, but you do have 12 volt running throughout the camper or the trailer, it's going to work out great for you. Here's that switch I was just talking about. So, it gives you the ability to turn that on and off from the outside.Even if you have it hooked up to a light switch inside, it's really a nice plus to this. This is going to be a really good size light. It's going to measure at 6-1/4" x 3-7/16" x 1-7/8" on the depth there.

So, it's going to work out great for some of those replacements on those factory lights, if you've damaged those, but I like the oval design here and you can see we had an older style rectangle light. We need to clean that up a little bit more, but this just gives this camper a little bit more modern look. This is kind of a style that a lot of campers are going with now. So, we're just trying to put a little bit more updated, look to this camper and I think this does a really good job of doing that.I turned down the lights here in the studio, just to give you a better idea as to how bright this is. I'm actually pretty surprised at how bright this is.

A lot of the times, I assume that LED will be brighter than incandescent, and this is a pretty bright incandescent light. It's lighting up a majority of the area over here. We're pretty close to a wall, but it's going up pretty far. It's pretty bright, lighting up all my steps, everything below us. So, I think this is a really good incandescent light.

Now the LEDs, they have some pros to them. They're going to burn a little bit cleaner, kind of have a more modern look to it compared to incandescent. Some people prefer that, some people prefer the incandescent look. It's definitely up to you, and the LEDs are going to just last a little bit longer.They're not going to draw as much power. You don't have to worry about replacing bulbs. With the incandescent, this will eventually wear out. The filament will break. You'll have to swap out that ball. So, keep an extra bulb on hand so you don't have the issue of this wearing out whenever you're out at the campsite. If it does, you can easily just pop that cover off and put the bulb in and you've got a light again. So, overall I think that this is a really nice incandescent light. Normally I kind of go towards LEDs, but I think this does a good job. I like the amber look, it's not over powerful or anything. It gives us enough light to kind of see where we're going. The amber is also going to cut down on bugs compared to the white light and the installation isn't too difficult. So, let's just walk you through how we got this one put in place.The first thing we need to do is get our old light removed. Now I have these exposed wires here that we're going to our old light, and I know that the black wire is power, and I know the white wire is ground. I went ahead and I've disconnected my power to the camper. The first thing I need to do here is strip these back and get those ready to be connected.Now our light comes pre-stripped. So, I'll get those exposed, and then I'm going to take some butt connectors and connect this. I'm just using a standard butt connector. You can use heat shrink if you'd like, but our wires are going to be inside the camper. So, it is not completely necessary to use heat shrink but if you'd like by all means, go ahead and use those. Get this put in place, get it crimped down. The black wire coming out of the light as power. The white wire is ground. So, it's very convenient that they're going to match up color wise, but not all the time is this going to be the same thing coming out of your camper. So, it's a good idea to test that out before you unhooked from power. Get it crimped down the same way, kind of make sure that it's still good.We can get those fed back in and, I have got a decent amount that I'm going to have to tuck back in here, but before I get that pushed in all the way, you can see where the wires are coming out of the back plate right here. It's off to the side. That's not my favorite design. I wish it was kind of here more centered because of the whole in our camper is centered to our mounting holes, but you can see there's this little indention here. That's where the wires will rest in to take some of the stress off of pushing this up against the body of the camper. Let me get those fed back in all the way. Now it doesn't come with it hardware. So, I'm just using screws that we're already in place holding our existing light there. I'm just going to get those put in place.If you do need to have new mounting holes, I would suggest drilling a pilot hole first. Once we get that all the way secured, we can pop our lens into place and get this tested out. Get this one here and you can see we have a working light. This installation wasn't too difficult. I think that this is going to be a really nice porch light for you. I personally would probably go with an option that doesn't have the switch. If I'm putting it up this high and I have a light switch inside, but if this is lower or you're putting it on an enclosed trailer or you don't have a light switch inside, I think this is a really good way to go, but that's going to do it for a look at the Optronics RV utility porch light..

Plain Jane exterior light to replace a broken one on a pop up. Easy to install, works great. Did what I needed it to. Thanks.


Just what I needed!


Exact replacement for my Flagstaff popup light. No holes to drill, plug and play. Delivery was prompt, came undamaged. etrailer will always be my parts source.

Well, weve sold this camper and it was still performing perfectly. Its an exact replacement.
Chris T - 02/07/2017


Bought these to replace some cracked stair lights on a travel trailer. They're direct replacements to the one's I have and I even reused the pigtail so no rewiring was needed. They appear to be as bright or brighter than the original but with energy saving LEDs.

The only possible con is that the outer housing didn't seem to snap on as firmly as most light housings do. It doesn't seem loose so hopefully it's not a problem down the road.


Item was exactly as described.
I have
used many times always with excellent service. Web site is easy to use with detailed descriptions of items.
I use etrailer for all my parts and supply's and recommend them to every one.


product was delivered intact, I sold the unit so never installed it but passed it along to the next happy camper. I'd rate higher but since I never installed it or saw it work, I only rated it good.


Worked out perfect for me. Easy to install. Just need some silicone. Wish is was LED though.. that's why I gave it 4 stars


Looks well made. Needed a porch light on my camper so I don't have the bright LED canopy lights on all of the time. This will work great.


Great product! Every product I recently purchased from etrailer exceeded my expectations. Great customer attention and amazing products delivered in a timely manner.


This trailer light is exactly like the one that was on the trailer originally. I searched all over town to find it, but no luck. When I ordered it online it came right away and was a breeze to install.


This is the exact same product that was on my camper. Installation was fairly easy and light works great. The description when I ordered said it does not have a switch but it does as you can tell by the picture.


I broke my original on my trailer. Same light that came on my rockwood trailer. Etrailer shipped it fast, and it arrived perfect. Thank you so much!


Works great.
Easy Install.
Great Customer service.


Perfect fit for my 2004 Rockwoods' broken porch light. Fast delivery.


Perfect replacement for my old, cracked lenses. They fit nice and snug


The light looks good, it is totally what I expected. If I need additional parts, I will check out this web page.


Part came on time (actually before the stated date), fit as noted in the description. Would use them again. Thanks!


perfect fit. just what I needed. and at a great price. thanks


Product arrived in a few days and was exactly what we needed to replace broken light

  • Dimensions of the Replacement Lens for RVPL5A and RVPL7A Lights, part # APL5AB
    The Replacement Lens for RVPL5A and RVPL7A Lights # APL5AB is meant to be an exact replacement for the Optronics porch lights # RVPL5A and # RVPL7A as the title suggests. Although I cannot confirm if it would fit on the part number that you referenced, I can give you the dimensions so that you can check it out. The replacement lens is 5-1/2" Wide x 2-3/4" Tall x 3/4" Deep. You can compare these measurements to what you have to see if it is compatible or not.

  • Replacement for Amber RV Porch Light
    The Replacement Lens # APL5AB you referenced is only designed to fit the Optronics RV Porch Utility Light - Incandescent - Oval - White Housing - Amber Lens # RVPL5A and Optronics RV Porch Utility Light w/ Switch # RVPL7A and I would not be able to guarantee a fit in any other light. I was unable to locate a reference to your particular light so the best option we can offer is one of the two aforementioned porch lights.

  • Replacement Bulb Recommendation for the Optronics Oval Porch Light RVPL7A
    The bulb inside of the # RVPL71 is a 1141 bulb. The only version of this light we offer is an LED like the part # AR50367 which would work great because LEDs don't produce anywhere near the heat of an incandescent bulb like what came with the light. I attached a review video for this bulb for you to check out as well. It shows the bulb being installed in a similar RV porch light application as well.
